Father, remind me today to approach my neighbors without judgement. “Therefore let us stop passing judgement on one another. Instead, make up your mind not to put any stumbling block or obstacle in the way of a brother or sister.”
Gracious Heavenly Father, we know You have called us to be disciples. Reveal to me those neighbors who need to know You. Teach us how to speak of the hope we have in Jesus; to speaking loving and gentle ways, with confidence and without boasting.
Open the eyes of my neighbors and let them see and know in their hearts that You have made a pathway for them. “For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.”
Lord, may my neighbors experience your perfect love. “Such love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear. If we are afraid, it is for fear of punishment, and this shows that we have not fully experienced His perfect love.”
Jesus, help me to love my neighbors even as You have loved me. May my neighbors see Your love in my life. May they see this love and be drawn to You. “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.”
I pray that my neighbors discover the mystery of Christ and know that He is the hope of glory. “To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.”
